- I'm so addicted to couponing and chasing a good deal. Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband We've been married 12 years. (He must love me very much because he puts up with my couponing and low carb cooking)!!! We live in San Antonio, home of the NBA champions, San Antonio Spurs!! I am a big Dallas Cowboys fan and have always admired my favorite player, Roger Staubach. We belong to a Texas Hold 'em Poker League and have made some really good friends while playing poker. I am a proud Grandmother and love spending time with my "munchkins".

RECEIVE...$5 RR + $10 RR +$5 RR...This deal is good until 12/31/08.
I was able to do this deal 4 times- 3 times with Robitussin and 1 time with Dimetapp ( I used every single $1 Robitussin and Dimetapp Q I had-some people are printing out internet $2 Q's and making this deal a bigger money maker). But I decided to roll all of my $10 Conair Hairdryer RR's and all of them BEEPED! Now I have $90 in RR's-need to use them by 1/12/09!

I've had great luck using the maybelline BOGO this week with the $4 lipstick/gloss Q-I was able to use 2 $4 Q's at 2 different stores and got the overage to pay for other great deals. My daughter was not as lucky-the WAG's we went to last night would only let her use 1 Q-said she could only use 1 Q b/c it was a BOGO...she was still happy with her deal-but it got me upset-that WAG's always give me problems with Q's---I won't be going back to that WAG's-
On to CVS-I was given a 30% off friend's and family Q last Saturday!
I used it Sunday and practically finished my Christmas shopping! I bought some very nice gifts.
I took my daughter to CVS last night on a Q lesson-she got some great deals and received $13+ in ECB's-I gave her 2 Sunday papers, 2 Reinventing Beauty mags and 2 Diabetes books with Q's...

I read on someone's blog about the Goody (hair accessories) ouchless coupon on the internet and how you could combine it with the walgreen's coupon in the December rebate book.......I got a very nice hair brush for .99! (stocking stuffer)
I also read about the Soleil razor deal-I had already cashed in on the other razor deal at wags and had some Soleil $3 coupons. Wags has $3 coupon in the December rebate book................ $.99!!(nice stocking stuffer)
I then took advantage of the sale price of Tag spray for men-$2.99 and I had a $1 coupoon-a good stocking stuffer for 1.99!
I really went for some 9V batteries-Walgreen's has a b1g1 store coupon-searched high and low and finally found those suckers....got 4 9V batteries-1.98(necessities)
Didn't use any RR's have another week before they expire.
So here's the totals
Not a perfect deal, but got some very nice items to tuck away for X-mas!I'm impatiently waiting for my $73 GC-my first WAGS rebate!!

I chased and caught the perfect deal at Target!!!
#1 4 scented oil candles-apple cinnamon @ 2.50 each
2 B1G1 free coupons=
Receive $5.00 Target GC
2 scented oil candles (last two in store) @ 2.50 each
2 scented oil candle refills @ 2.50 each
1 B1G1 free coupon for candles
1 1.50 off for 2 refills =
Receive $5.00 Target GC and bonus of $5.00 off Grocery Purchase of $50 or more at Target!!
I wanted the glade candle holders on sale for 2.50 (I could use a buy 1 get 1 free coupon) and could make a perfect deal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
However, easier said than done, I guess these puppies are almost sold out. I did get 2 plug ins and 2 candle refills and 1 candle(had to throw it in since I found 1 in all my searches)
I used a b1g1 coupon for the plug ins and a $1.50 off coupon for the refills.
Paid OOP about $8.00 and got a $5.oo Target GC. I could've deleted the candle and saved $2.50 plus tax, and my deal would've been close to perfect! Just couldn't resist the candle (and it had more coupons inside the box!).
Will try 1 more Target today!!

1. have the same number of items as coupons-I started being much more diligent with this and it has worked!
2. If you want more than one item that gives RR's-try to split the transactions--the RR deal - Buy $10 in selected Kraft products, get $3 RR (9/26 to 10/25) would only work if it was the only RR deal in the transaction (learned the hard way-but took my items back and did it separately-and it worked like a charm)
